Bliain an Chreidimh – Our Patron Saints Laochra an Chreidimh No.54.
Saint Francis of Assisi was born in Assisi in 1181. He was an Italian Catholic Friar and preacher. As a child he was very into fighting. He’s the patron saint of animals and ecology. He founded the men’s Francisican Order, the Women’s Order of St. Clare and the third Order of Saint Francis for people not living monastic lives. He was a very good man and visited the sick in hospitals. He gave his food and clothes to the poor. Towards the end of his life he became very sick, he was told he only had a few weeks to live. All he said was “welcome Sister Death”. Francis died on October 23rd 1226.
I’m picking the name Frances because my granny is called Frances and she is a lovely person. Frances was the patron saint of animals and I love animals.

Reilig Ráithín Uí Thuaidh
Ráithín Uí Bhuaigh (Raheenyhooig) graveyard is located in the townland of Ráithín Uí Bhuaigh, parish of Dingle in the barony of Corca Dhuibhne. It is located on an elevated site overlooking Dingle Harbour from the south – southwest.
The graveyard is recorded on the Ordinance Survey first edition as being located inside a sub-circular enclosure denoted by a broken line, but by the 1896 edition the graveyard was shown as a perfectly square enclosure surrounded by trees. ‘An Seabhac’, Pádraig Ó Siochfhrada, who lived in the area and is buried in the graveyard, referred to the enclosure as a rath.
However, the Dingle Peninsula Archaeological Survey states that there is no trace of such a monument, but it did note the OS Name Book description of the site as being surrounded by ‘roughly circular old ditch’. Indeed, the townland name Ráithín Uí Bhuaigh indicates the presence of a ringfort or enclosure within the townland, yet no other example is know.
The majority of the recorded earlier burials, marked by rough, undressed grave markers, ar located inside the line of the inner of the graveyard located inside the original earthen enclosure. Indeed, 16 previously unrecorded cross-inscribed stones, some of early medieval date, and all located within the earlier enclosure, were also noted by the survey. A number of these are illustrated in this book. It is also worthy of note that six white quartz grave markers were recorded, a stone type often associated with children’s burial grounds or killeens.
Clearly, there is enough evidence to suggest that Ráithín Uí Bhuaigh graveyard was originally located inside the earthen enclosure that gives the townland its name and that its current form is as a result of alterations made in the second half of the nineteenth century. (John Sheehan U.C.C.)

Deastógáil na Maighdine Beannaithe Muire
‘Mórann m’anam an Tiarna, agus rinne mo spiorad gairdeas i nDia mo Shlánaitheoir. Óir dhearc sé le fabhar ar ísle a bhanóghlaigh; mar féach, déarfaidh na glúine uile gur méanar dom’.
Cuireann Leabhar an Apacailipsis scáth orainn nuair a léimid é. Pictiúr de shaol eile é agus é I bhfad ón áit ina bhfuilimid anois, ‘bean a raibh an ghrian mar bhrat uimpi agus an ghealach faoina cosa agus coróin de dhá réalta déag ar a ceann’. Tugann Lúcás pictiúr dúinn don bhean céanna ‘is beannaithe thú idir mná’ ach í an-chosúil linn féin, mar mháthair agus mar chomharsa. Caitheann sí a saol faoi inspioráid an Spioraid Naoimh. Leanann sí a mac sa saol seo agus isteach sna Flaithis. Tugann sí misneach dúinn a Mac a leanúint agus go mbeidh an oidhreacht chéanna againne a fuair sí féin ar dtús.
Guí an Phobail:
1. Go mbeidh an Eaglais ag fógrú don saol an deascéal go bhfuil ár fíor bhaile ar neamh.
A Thiarna, éist linn.
2. Go méadaí Dia ár gcreideamh agus ár gcarthanacht dár gcomharsana mar a thaispeáin a Mháthair dúinn.
3. Go raibh Íosa i gcroílár ár dtealaigh, iad á stiúrú ar bhóthar a leasa.
4. Caith go speisialta leo sin atá ag iompar clainne, tabhair misneach agus dóchas dóibh.
A Mhuire na ngrás, a Mháthair Mhic Dé
Go gcuire tú ar mo leas mé.
Go sábhála tú mé ar gach uile olc;
Go sábhála tú mé idir anam is chorp.
Go sábhála tú mé ar muir is ar tír.
Go sábhála tú me ar lic na bpian.
Garda na n-aingeal os mo chionn
Dia romham, agus Dia liom.
Dingle Races 2013
‘Tis the first week in August, now autumn draws near, Through my years they are telling, of death I’ve no fear.
I’m heading back west, with old neighbours to mingle,
And to greet long lost friends at the Races of Dingle.
You’ll meet film stars, hucksters, purveyors of tall tales,
From Boston, Buncrana, from England and Wales,
With sporran and kilt a proud Scot came from Pringle
To lead in a winner at the Races of Dingle.
I was twelve years of age when I rode the grey mare
At Baile and tSagairt for a farmer from Clare;
Not a reck in my pocket to jangle or jingle,
Yet as happy as Larry at the Races of Dingle.
When Lindbergh looked down on that beautiful bay,
On his lone flight to Paris from Amerikay,
His heart missed a beat and his pulse went a-tingle
“I’ll be back soon,” said he “for the Races of Dingle”.
A celibate dolphin called Fungi swims nigh
(There’d be fierce consternation if he said goodbye)
Destined, I know, to be pure, chaste and single
For fear he’d miss out on the Races of Dingle.
So I’ll say in conclusion, “go mbeirimid beo”,
When my time comes I hope up above I will go.
The sound of the hooves beside ocean and shingle
Will be Heaven to me at the Races of Dingle.
(Garry McMahon. Air: Variation of Old Orange Flute )
